    Vasse Felix Cabernet Sauvignon 2007
    Sold Out $28.99
    2010 vintage available for $29.99
    I love this wine - it is everything I love in Cabernet. Good, rich fruit, cedar, dried savory herbs and a killer structure. Not over the top, not one that I'd throw in the cellar for a long period of time, but this has potential to evolve over the next 5 years or so. Tasting delicious now, with a lovely balance. Something I'd like with a pork roast or even a steak - not too heavy, so not for heavy foods, but a great all around Cab.

    King Estate Acrobat Pinot Noir 2009
    Sold Out $18.99
    2012 vintage available for $16.99

    This is what I'd term a lighter-bodied Pinot Noir. It's bright & fresh red fruits are backed by a pleasing spice. Lots of zesty acidity, but with a slight savory texture. Good balance, great food wine - a go-to for drinking good red in hot weather.

    Errazuriz Wild Ferment Chardonnay 2006
    Sold Out $18.29
    2013 vintage available for $19.99
    So delicious! Granted, it's no Burgundy, but it is fantastically balanced and smooth. Wonderful fruit, mellow oak and just a lovely finish. If you like GOOD Chardonnay, this is a wine for you.

    Lanson Black Label Brut (375ML half-bottle)
    $29.99
    I love half-bottle options, particularly when they are good! This is an excellent Champagne- dry and crisp, mineral and citrus, but with that typical yeasty note that makes it fill the nose and mouth. Great finish, too. Excellent acidity for pairing with food.

    King Estate Signature Collection Pinot Gris 2007
    Sold Out $15.99
    2013 vintage available for $15.99
    Aromas of ripe peach and tropical fruit; palate offers the same, backed by what I call zippy acidity - it almost dances in your mouth. Great balance, represents Oregon Pinot Gris quite well.

    Elk Cove Pinot Gris 2007
    Sold Out $16.99
    2013 vintage available for $18.99
    Elk Cove Pinot Gris is exactly what I'm looking for in Oregon PG - it matches lively acidity with rich mouthfeel. Elk Cove has both in perfect preportion - a smooth, silky, rich texture of sweet ripe fruits with that zing of acid to make it refreshing. Well done.

    On the lighter bodied style of Rose bubblies, with delicate fruit and wonderfully crisp acidity. Well-balanced, great finish, super refreshing. Lovely as an aperitif, with a light spring or summer lunch or with some take-out chinese or thai!
